“I apologize,” Silva said. “I worked hard in training to go four or five rounds. I dropped from 230 pounds to 205 and then to 185. I worked my butt off. I had a long camp preparing for the fight. I owe you guys in the media, the fans and everyone an apology. I was prepared, but it’s unfortunate what happened.”

Anderson used to fight at 168-pounds a few years ago in Japan, so I don't know what his weight is. I think he walks around at 230-pounds, he's very big. I don't know if he can cut down. |
I walk around at 188-190-pounds. Putting on or losing too much weight, for me, is very hard. I'm always about the same size, I've got an ectomorph type physique.
That is GSP talking on Anderson.....GSP seems to think Anderson walks around 230ish.
I think before or around the Hendo fight, Anderson bulked up....maybe it was earlier in 2007...either way....he gained a lot of muscle all over...and now he can't get under 180 (from what Soares says)
